everything but she says her parents. why would you tell her the wise policy visit two young sisters who have been reunited with their family in russia after their radicalized parents took them to iraq. a small rightwing ronnie in berkeley california is swamped by much larger counter-demonstration. and in the top stories of the week they are wrong the only recount just caliph all one of us was last strongholds but the victory comes at
a heavy price for civilians. who are watching all the international with me rosana lockwood line from moscow thank you for joining us. five children from southern russia who were stranded in the wrong have been reunited with their families it's believed the youngsters were taken to iraq by their parents who were killed while fighting for eisel film the children in a baghdad ofen age we've also been helping to find their other relatives in russia among the five of two sisters had and fatima. i know never mom or dad h. . not. so.
one of them could i said i deserve her. so. much bill. take that down thank you very. much. it may have traveled to southern mustard to see how the paradox thing to life back home tears of joy in relief very evident at the plane carrying five children from iraq landed in grozny but for the families waiting with stories and balloons there was also the question how to help these children some to some the maillot see through witness the horrors of i still the loss of their parents and being left all alone into bugged out over the edge.
for their little ceased to have vision and foot sima base is another thing of the past here is then your home and their family has a great to share their first day together with us the girls found the perfect remedy in their grandfather plenty of sweets and friends to play with. this is had these are and she's clearly the leads of the pack it seems the grueling experience of footboards own has made her even stronger for team zero six comfort in the arms of her ground who seems just too afraid to part with her again even for a moment it looks like the perfect family image a house filled with children's love to cries plenty of noise and fussing about it takes a while to realize what's missing. she saw everything but she says her parents are alive why would i tell her otherwise. and yet even with all the love and care has to offer his granddaughters there are still
many rooms left on here. and then there's other because of the three days without food or water in a dusty dirty basement she told me when there were bombs they would go to basement and when she sees a helicopter now she's terrified and i tell her not to be afraid you know what i was opening an ice cream the other day and i have a habit of opening the wrapper by popping it i did once and she jumped as if she'd had an explosion. you. know this. conflict is the creation of adults but it's often children who pay the heaviest price while hundreds even thousands of youngsters who remain trapped and lost in what appears to be the ruins of a self-proclaimed caliphate at the asia and that seem along with a few lucky ones who escaped well now hopefully learn how to be happy children.
among the other children returning to their families this week was nine year old merriam she was injured and very fragile when taken in by in the orphanage in baghdad another is allie whose art was among the first contact us he's only three years old just like seoul to norad who can see hear his relatives say he's already read just into everyday life at home. now to california where a pro where rightwing pro trump monch has led to a tenth of. the activists were involved outnumbered by so-called running against hate crime. and i know i know. they were here outside of work at the civic center in downtown berkeley california and you can see around me there's a huge crowd of people calling themselves anti fascist protesters these are people
that assemble to counter a right wing rally that was called the for today for this afternoon and the slogan say no to mark says well these are both here that object to a number of the people involved with that recorded right wing rally talking to the white supremacy and fascism assemble to denounce it so it's quite in the first crowd that is assembled here in front of the civic center as you can see behind me here we have a folks that generally referred to as the black bloc you know they've got goggles on now they're covered in black masks times come in an arc is a grouping we've got other people here all with different marxist groups talking about socialism and communism while we have a lot of people signed to say things like say no to hate the city of berkeley has actually rallied around the slogan for the united against a that's been hanging from all the public buildings of this late in the stores around the city is just one illustration of the ongoing division that continues to take place across the united states especially in the aftermath of charlottesville a lot of different views being expressed here a lot of anger but a lot of folks that just say they're worried about their country there seems to be
a lot of division the far left in the far right political violence in the streets so a lot of different messages here in downtown berkeley california. the protest in berkeley was the latest in a wave of unrest since the tragic events in charlottesville ogust twelve one woman was killed nineteen injured when a foreign take stream astride his car into a crowd of anti-fascist. straight to a member of the libertarian national committee told us violence is being normalized across america. a lot of the normalized violence that we're seeing is happening because even at the government level we're seeing situations in which the government settles its disputes with violence that there's a dispute with the islamic world is settling it with violence if there's a dispute with drugs this at all that with violence and that example needs to change so one possibility will be a wholesale rejection of violence at the personal level and at the governmental level and that would be an incredible opportunity for american growth but the other
possibility is an increasing cycle of violence where violence is normalize or becomes more and more part of our politics and violent politics is a rejection of everything american stands for is that we're able to settle our dispute with out violence it is one of the things that has set america part since our founding and to see that going in this direction to me is just heartbreaking i want to see it stop. the iraqi military says it has retaken town of follow one of the last islamic state strongholds in the country but the u.s. back to fence it has come as a heavy price for civilians. the operation began i week and i saw militants have dropped back from taliban but they still hold nearby territory merde gas they have reports from the recaptured town.
we're at the airport of talent five near five kilometers from the city itself where the operation to liberate the elephant is underway this actually serves as a sort of said cold base serving the entire operation and soldiers from the front lines they come here to rest and to eat before heading back there exultant they say that the operation is almost over they've actually even got a message for isis. i have a massive leave they are world now you have no place here will hunt you down wherever you are there jubilation however is a stark odds with what the people of talent have gone through what it was miserable we were under occupation imagine that and you know they turned the mosques into prisons there were thirty to forty people there we don't know what happened to them they demanded that molests recruited young people to join i sow and when they
refused they locked them up there was no interest in no food nothing to eat we were almost dying there was no work and no man to sing my kidneys have almost failed it's been three years without medicine or anything tens of thousands of iraqi soldiers will mobilized for this operation the u.s. led coalition has brought to bear its full mice its people fleeing from telephone more than thirty thousand have escaped from the city escaped from the fighting they had to brave walking through the you put in deserts which is all there is here for ten twenty hours to get to safety. to find water to find food medicine medical supplies and indeed treatment and from what we've heard many of them didn't make it but the commander of the operation he spoke to us and he said they expect to be done in another four days. everyone thought deliberation would be difficult and we would be two months the deliberations room is complete another interesting
development that we've learned of is that on the twenty fifth of august four hundred families of isis fighters were let out of the city the details are murky and nobody knows exactly what happened but the commander of the operation and he previously was the chief of the mosul operation he told us that indeed this had happened he confirmed it but again without details and what about the four hundred families that escaped that escaped. did you fail to catch them up did you let them do for humanitarian reasons. we have a system we handed over to the iraqi government and they handled them till the battle and telephone is far from over from what the soldiers tell us most of the civilians have managed to get out and managed to flee nevertheless there are still thousands of people trapped in a shrinking area where isis still holds sway and where they still haven't been
defeated and they have a terrifying few days ahead of them. the operation bears some striking similarities to the recent campaign in nearby moser which left thousands dead the two cities were also strongholds besieged by u.s. backed a rocky forces thousands of civilians were trapped inside both telefon and mosul and the constant bombardment many of those who tried to flee were killed in the crossfire while those who remained quickly ran out of basic supplies. and the operations have been moving forward of course we see that there are a lot of others have been of course the people in. need similar consequences to what the political numbers are very fun loving food water and it does it easy that people who are cleaning the oil are really. leaman you know then. nine while being shot. people in pakistan have been
denouncing donald trump after he accused the country of harboring terrorists crowds took to the streets of karachi on sunday chanting death to america and tried to make their way to the u.s. consulate islamabad early rejected trump's allegation saying no country in the world has suffered more than pakistan from the scourge of terrorism the statement went on to describe washington's stance as disappointing as it ignores the enormous sacrifices made by the pakistani nation. u.s. presence rebuke of pakistan came as he announced his new strategy for afghanistan and they marked a complete reversal of his pre-election promise we will also expand authority for american armed forces to target the terrorist and criminal networks afghanistan is a total and complete disaster let's get with it get out of afghanistan although his administration hinted at a boost in troop numbers in afghanistan trump chose to keep exact a secret and he called on nato allies to could make
a greater contribution in afghanistan the president's new plan there provides no time frame for withdrawal we also people in afghanistan what they think about the u.s. military presence. how did you go where you could on american and afghan forces carry out operations at night sometimes their intelligence reports are inaccurate civilians including women and children get killed. and there was a doctor is a horse so who is hit by a drone strike and another man was on his way home when he was killed. during a u.s. operation into the house and. they shot him dead later they said they had killed a taliban fighter before they left they blew up the entire building we spoke to former u.s. presidential candidate ron paul he told us the american military presence in afghanistan is likely to continue for many years to come. he changes the words and makes it sound like the world will come apart if we don't
continue to be the world's policeman he says he's not into nation building but there was a pretense anyway how many nations that we can really build or improve we've torn nations apart so he is seen as a flip flopper which i think politically is a bad position to be. going to be perpetual war nobody knows exactly who the enemy is and nobody will know when it is ended but i think trump has been maybe a little bit more upfront that his goal isn't to get done in six months or a year it looks like he's planning to be there for the long term. the syrian army backed by russian ak of a has destroyed one of the most active islamic state units in syria some eight hundred militants were killed in the operation in the euphrates valley a large number of heavy machine guns were also destroyed along with tanks and all tillery according to the russian defense ministry and it's all part of a wide
a push to break isis blockades of the key city if there is still the battle took place near this village it's about mine too close to us from dear it's all one of the terrorists' last strongholds in the country the syrian army is advancing on multiple fronts to lift a three year long siege that middle east correspondent port asli has the latest. it is very significant basically the taking of deer as all would point to the strategic defeat of islamic state in syria it follows weeks of fighting between the syrian army that is being assisted by the russian air force and islamic state and in the past few weeks we have witnessed and number of breakthroughs that the syrian army is making against the terrorist organization. the over there.
are. now there is or is a city that islamic states has completely surrounded for the better part of three euros there's only a small part of the city that is in the hands of the syrian army and they're completely blockaded there's no way in there's no way out and that's the reality also for residents of the city if you can just imagine that this is a city that is home to some one hundred thousand people and for the last three years this has been their reality they are going to go about their work there was. a lot of them feel knowing when i took them i shouldn't first of course come to know what to. look for the journey the journey of any i mean if islamic state was
able to be defeated here it would be a major a significant achievement by the syrian army because essentially islamic state finds his would be cut off from any kind of other military forces and also from major financial resources and sources for them and so it would see. no the final chapter of islamic state in syria. half a million people attended a peace rally in barcelona on saturday evening marchers held banners with the message i am not afraid of reference to the terrorist attack earlier this month that claimed sixteen lives the probe into the atrocity has been focusing on the small town of reporter where the terrorist cell was based peter all of the travel before r.t. . radicalizing force they were radicalized by in the rock'n born police now believe the report was at the center of the plot.
this small spanish town took away in the foothills of the pyrenees is hardly what you think of as a hotbed of islamic terrorism but it was here in the fall that the terrorist cell which attacked barcelona recruited were indoctrinated and radicalized eventually going on to carry out their deadly mission. but it was here that the terrorists that rammed his truck into crowds of people and boss a loner lived. the twenty two year old moroccan was gunned down on monday following eight four day manhunt by authorities. why the. local people here say they can't believe he lived within that community. they play football
together on the beach nearby with other kids from the neighborhood they were brought up here. of course. they were behind what happened around here can believe it seemed to be very nice people will. be. roaming around but it's just the. saloon with a whole slew of things that the cell melted into a ball society attending the local high school and being a fixture on local football fields so how did say seemingly quiet group of quiet teenage is a quiet town and is part of a jihad to sell. the answers to the vast many looking towards the mosque that they attended it's here that they're understood to have attended prayers led by our society who's been accused of being the room. behind. it is pointed the
finger at him and now that's being reiterated by some of those accused of being part of the. have appeared in court but who will. see what do we know about the. moroccan national we know that he had a criminal past in front back in twenty ten he was sent to prison here in spain for his part in a drug smuggling operation and it's in jail where he is understood to have become radicalized in fact he's believed to have spent time with those who plotted and carried out the madrid bombings we also know that back in twenty sixteen he spent time in belgium around the time of the bombings on the metro the airports in brussels. he is believed to have been killed it was announced by authorities that his d.n.a. was found at the site of a bomb making factory did exploded in at the moment the authorities are writing bad
off as that his own potential weapons of death course him out in the end. as the investigation continues arrests continue to be made including that of the owner of an internet cafe that suspected members of the terrorist cell and no into a frequent it begs the question just how many of the small tranquil communities like this could potentially be harboring fatal terrorist cells peter all of. these are the twelve suspected members of that terror cell that came from report all are believed to be from the moroccan community and are of a similar age the oldest was twenty two and the youngest just seventeen of course radicalized teenagers are not a new phenomenon last year a sixteen year old syrian boy was arrested on suspicion of plotting
a bomb attack in the job. and city of cologne and in paris a fifteen year old boy was arrested on suspicion of planning a separate attack jennifer breeden an attorney specializing in religious terrorism told us the constant threat of extremism poses a direct challenge to civil liberties in europe. some of the leaders and other european countries have said that we just need to quote unquote get used to the fact that this is part of our lives and it's very sad to see that in a continent such as europe which has had so many freedoms has such diversity of different people and has allowed those freedoms it is sad to see that people are now no longer surprised again this is a lot of backtracking they're having to go against major national or european union policies which state that you know they shouldn't do much they shouldn't look at religion they should look at other things and they certainly shouldn't police the streets. hurrican harvey is causing devastation in the u.s. state of texas with at least five people killed and dozens missing it's the most

bitcoin saul's for trust it's a mathematical formula that solves for think about all the institutions in your life that require trust you trust people on the road are going to be not crashing into you you trust a doctor is professional and you trust the hospital is working and you trust third parties all day long but point is the first trust international currency doesn't require trust it just requires consensus to buy into every ten minutes the protocol and why would you not be buying it from the call if you're getting fabulously wealthy or watching central banks collapse i like about i mean wealth comes and
i don't know. more. about what. glance only learned of this case through the documents we showed him. the approaches that they used to attack the person doing the research on linking cured meats with cancer were the standard things they do one is to go through her work with a fine tooth comb and find every little thing they could possibly complain about and because the issues tend to be fairly technical you know if you're a politician or if you're a reporter or english or a highly specialized reporter all you hear is well this person said there was something bad and this other person said that they didn't know what they were
talking about and some of these efforts to go after the scientists and to discredit the scientists is a key element of a much larger strategy to just gum up the entire policymaking process to the point where nothing happens that translates into hundreds of billions of dollars of sales and profits for them so the whole game is just to slow down. in the documents on dr preston martin other even more machiavellian scenarios were studied. here it was suggested that talks be held with the scientist. here a proposed seminar in order to lure her. the aim to influence her and even shape the conclusions of her future studies. the common point of these documents they all come from the same lobbying firm
multinational business services. already hired by philip morris to contest the effects of passive smoking on health and headed by a certain jim toth see a master of influence. amazingly in washington the heart of american power this law. we asked is still well established. as he never answered our requests for an interview we went to see him without an appointment with our documents in hand and a hidden camera. for instance into the us he works here who are us and the french and journalists i'm looking for. and i'm looking on the noggin in the detail here of the new point
meant no new i was just looking for him because i called from france but if you just look in sound please there is the good news american lobbyists can be welcoming. we even managed to have jim talk to you on his cell phone there. are a couple of refrain here please. jim can you hear me. i want to ask you some questions susan system not to. work. because you have the set up a strategy to discredit to work for us come here so i wanted to know more about this. well. i don't know if you're just talking about.
me and i know if you do your work in congress i'm going to ask you you know i can say no i'm going to have to as you believe. understand you if you like the welcoming lobbyist you love the angry why i'm asking you to have no point enough to sleep now join each night leave you could lose your yes please please i am motoring you out can't just leave now that it's out. of here ok you understand that you have a tough life out here and you cannot go back. to do you have to end like that. in the end mr trott's he did a great job well at least for the industrialist. back then and he pressed on martin arguments were brought into the media spotlight. by this health journalist on a major national t.v. channel a few days after the publication of the famous study. let's get back to our hot dog
study remember they asked the people did you eat a hot dog they didn't ask them did you put it in a bun did you put ketchup on it did you put mustard on and. you might be saying who really cares one way or the other but that's important because it may be that it's not the hot dog at all that's causing this increased risk of cancer or maybe it's the bun maybe it's the ketchup maybe it's the mustard so you have to be careful when you read these studies not to say oh this causes this. the powers that be didn't go any farther than one nine hundred seventy s. nitrites file which could have resurfaced remains locked away. you're probably wondering what susan president thinks the woman targeted by the lobby. we showed her the documents and what upset her the most was seeing that fellow scientists had played along with the industrialists. these professors will get paid
a huge amount to do review by in this case probably the american media institute i mean thousands and thousands of dollars they probably get more from doing this kind of thing than they do from their regular jobs. seeing your name like this in all. my goodness a i gave a lot of people a lot of work. were you aware of this well i was aware that the processed meat community was concerned but not aware of all the extent of this. twenty years on and she had turned the page. not of interest anymore that's how. the public awareness of science goes it's of interest in that it's not of interest so you knew all that but today but it doesn't it doesn't matter i mean it still in the literature and. in may includes people in
future and it has influence people in the past and that's fine. but another scientist involved in the case has enjoyed a much more flourishing career. a scientist paid by the american meat institute to shoot down susan preston martin's work. david clear found. today david gergen is head of the u.s. government's nutrition program and he's invited all over the world for a scientific conferences where he gives his experts point of view. totally independent. to. introduce reasons why the need is in order to be healthy diet has been just. on that day he was in front speaking to scientists from around the world about meat and the link between processed meat
and cancer in order to denounce backed up by a power point the climate of fear panic and even hysteria. and we know because we were there. it was right at the start of our investigation when we barely knew about nitrites and had the need of enlightened specialists to help us. so there are new reviews published this year that say nitrite is not harmful and others that say it is harmful. i don't think anybody really knows. definitively what what the answer is. a few months after this handshake when we have learned more about the industry of doubt. bells started ringing. so we took advantage of our trip to america to ask him for another interview. only this time with
a lot more cards up our sleeve. do you remember. american meat institute no never no i was interested in the scientists was interesting martin yes do you know her i know who she is i do not know her personally i do remember reading a paper on her desk for the american meat institute found this and it was prepared for the american newton says fruit. ok there. this is something different yes. this was done twenty years ago roughly so. i had forgotten about that do you remember how much you were paid for this evaluation though i do not as i said it was twenty or twenty five years ago you didn't know when you were working for the american to do this or that philip morris was opening there.
i'm not going to say yes or no at this point in time because it's more than twenty years ago did you know that the tobacco strategy motto was doubt is our product no i never heard that no no don't trust your productive to. that was not mine and that was not my intent my intent was to do an evaluation. if i had read these papers and found that there were not shortcomings in the papers that they would not deficiencies in the papers i don't think i would have criticized them but don't you think that your point of view would be stronger than your arguments stronger if i hadn't found that you had been won by the american meat institute. no i don't i don't think that. would change and wouldn't change my point of view it might change your point of view that you
tend to not believe what i'm saying because twenty five years ago i got some amount of money that i don't remember. for making progress he can't remember how much but he does remember getting paid. but you have to understand that the industry is a money making business so they're very risk averse they would not fund a study that. someone proposed to them that eating hot dogs increases the risk of childhood cancer why would they fund that you know they would only fund something that says. proposes childhood cancer is prevented by eating more hotdogs or there's no relationship you know they're not going to fund a study that. is bad for their business. at least he's honest much of the meat industry is lobbying depends on collaboration with paid scientists
and that's still how things work. during a conference on processed meats and cancer. of french scientists confirmed that. there is no reference on the subject internationally renowned expert. he speaks and acts casually and doesn't get telling us how things work at scientific events. it is just it was. me it is a. good point. it's a deep. comes to me. does it. feel. good so i mean. you should she meet. me you don't see fifty fifty.
to see this look it's not going to be what you did was a mystery she didn't put on the. here's what people have been saying about redacted and i say. the only show i go out of my way to do you know what it is that really packs them. yeah john oliver of arc to america is the same. pair. way better than food best bet is to see if anybody had ever heard of love redacted tonight was the president of the world bank though very critical reading seriously send us an e-mail the two thousand and eight economic crisis turns some countries into pigs these are the countries with we
curriculum is that needed austerity policies if you are in a situation of flow bloat even the recession austerity is a very bad idea it doesn't work it makes millions of people very unhappy those who are unemployed see their wages decline after almost a decade how good are the results to solace that the new york city's will by the people gathered in which the wider world beat people with your daughter june. traded beautiful blue she thought it was i mean to for legal. challenge lasting with this young girl who is always think it she somehow they cannot get it. while the same measure is still in place who one of the consequences is to weaken blue bird flu dispute over who will first one of this is the truth the consider is the consequences are actually quite acceptable to the decision making.
a batch or sudden passing i've only just learnt you worry yourself in taking your last round turn. you're at it up to us we all knew it would i tell you i'm sorry for me i could so i write these last words in hopes to put to rest these things that i never got off my chest. i remember when we first met my life turned on each breath. but then my feeling started to change you talked about more like it was again still some are fond of you those that didn't. like to question are are. secretly promised to never be like it said one does not need a funeral in the same as one enters the mind gets consumed with this one different speech because there are no other takers. to claim that mainstream media has met
its make. good coin saul's for trust it's a mathematical formula that solves for trust think about all the institutions in your life they're required to trust you trust people on the road are going to be not crashing into you you trust to be a doctor is professional you trust the hospital is working in a trust third parties all day long but point is the first trust less international currency that doesn't require trust it just requires consensus to do buy into every ten minutes the protocol and why would you not be buying into the protocol if you're getting fabulously wealthy or watching central banks collapse support i like about it i mean wealth comes and goes but watching central banks crawl into their desk and pee themselves and cry that's what i like. a few days later professor corp a set of some emails and photos of scientists he suspects of being close to the food industry. among them two
americans who came across at a conference on meat and cancer. andrew koski and nathan bryant. as we checked out these scientists profiles we discovered a document which should certainly never have been on the web. interim report issued by the american meat institute. it lays out the strategy for influencing the decisions of high profile organizations. this organization is the i r c the international agency for research on cancer please. this institution based in the old france is the worldwide reference on cancer. in two thousand and six.
the scientists classified nitrites in the probably carcinogenic category of products group to. and that was bad for business. so lobbyists are fighting to have this classification changed. page sixty four of a document. change in the i.r.c. nitrate nitrate classification from two aged to be. possibly carcinogenic. the strategy has a name i am r.c. challenged. it notably involves the two scientists we were interested in andrew wilkow sweet and nice and brian. armed with our brand new file it was time to set off to meet the meet sectors heavyweights. welcome to nashville tennessee the capital of country music and
notably the hometown of johnny cash. it's here that the american meat institute is holding its annual conference. in this huge building to be precise. the meat industry in the u.s. is a very very big business. all of the world's biggest players are here. smithfield number one import with a turnover of fourteen billion dollars a year car. the giant with thirty three billion dollars a year in crude alone. and tyson people all divisions record holder this year will mate with all of our divisions between b. or poultry and prepared between at thirty seven billion and forty billion dollars
in revenue so it's a snowball many very small companies put it. we checked it's over forty one billion dollars. after half an hour we spot a face in the crowd that rings a bell. that will in their tasting nibbles at every stand. that's right page ninety two of the i.r.c. challenge document with the short hair the american media institute senior vice president of public affairs janet riley. it's just that she's sorry i don't know lieutenant try that yeah i just tell you i'm something you go i'm looking for close to on to systems tend to answer any question about seduction type found. it's is this document it didn't do it i'm sorry. i wanted to supposed to. poke it and i didn't see it registered and no no actually it was in
fact just so but i have some important question that you keep your business yes of course i have mine stuff journalist caught just a question that i wanted to know what do you know about the eos challenge you know let me octet into your camera and silly know what i'm doing that it's about not touch and tenses think you know this is my study and i want to know who came so much for our interview not me why you disagree with you why you are. having been escorted outside. this is my press conference ok i'm been ordered to show id we try one last time it's close due in two. what tobacco industry did twenty k. that's your opinion that's your opinion what we're doing is providing science based here if you doubt this that our products are safe and it's fine to say right there but are you paying those scientists know you've got a camera rolling don't you. look away for such cases we always have
a plan b. on the list of i.r.c. challenge scientists there was one who agreed to see us the first on the list. andrew wilkow ski. we had to madison wisconsin. this city in the north of the united states is home to andrew milk housekeeper and a company of hot dog king oscar meyer who we came across in the preston martin case . the scientist worked for this company for thirty years. he now teaches at the university. but he doesn't hide his proximity to the american meat lobby. presented with our
eye a r.c. challenge documents he acknowledges everything. almost. so did the needs industry paid you for this i received some compensation for my time as well as the others how much i am likely to say a minute thousands tens of thousands of small. small amounts. can we have an idea. descending nitrite seems to be a very big thing for industry looking for a substitutes has been attempt it. something as simple.
i think the risk is. if it is indeed. on hearing that we pulled this expression. so fredricka the colorectal cancer the hundreds of studies on the dangers of nitrites none of it exists off you go nothing to do with it. in the united states it's thanks to scientists like neil county that the meat industry has been able to cut another notch in its belt. surprisingly in the health conscious state of california.
this imposing building is home to the state cabinet level california environmental protection agency. we have an appointment with sam dell sent deputy director for external and legislative affairs. to show us a document that doesn't exist in any other american state with a shell or not. and. so me. so this is the lists yes it's a list of substances judged dangerous to man by the state of california. to do business here manufacturers are banned from using these substances or they are obliged to warn consumers and it's very restrictive because there are over eight hundred products on the list so good example that would be in the tobacco smoke entirely and there's other things like as benzene that would be something you know we have come in things like exhaust and then here we have ants been on the news as
aspirin you know it's a special note especially for pregnant women oh here's kind of an odd one but you know these are a breath of bird. you know if you want to eat this go for it but be aware that you maybe don't want to eat it every single day so i'm doing fine i tried it i tried is not on the list. it's been here since nitrites has been targeted but procedures have never been seen through when we believe the chemical meets the criteria for listing we post what's known as a notice of intent a list and that triggers a period in which people can submit public comments on whether it does or does not meet the criteria we review the comments before making a final decision to complete. the nitrites here are the comments that swung the scale of the seven contributions six come from food industry lobbyists. and with thirty one pages the winner is. andrew.
before the interview we show. our documents on the. challenge. faced with an avalanche of proof gathered during months of investigation he ends up taking out his cell phone to take photos. however in answering our questions he seems less inspired. we. it's their business if they think that they can. influence a decision beyond the science but we want the science to the talking do you think it might happen that some times you are many planted by the industry we. do our best. to make decisions based soley on the science
regardless of whatever. pressure or words and say persuasion may be made by a any outside group. go for new will read examine the dangers of nitrites but not before next year. for the lobby it's a mini victory time gained and profits not lost. in europe a new study on nitrite was expected in december two thousand and fifteen almost a year later it still has not been.
coin saul's for trust it's a mathematical formula for trust think about all the institutions in your life that require trust you trust people on the road are going to be crashing into you you trust the doctors professional you trust the hospital is working in a trust third parties all day long point is the first trust international currency that doesn't require trust it just requires consensus to buy into every ten minutes the protocol and why would you not be buying in protocol if you're getting. watching central banks collapse i like about. comes and goes and watching central banks crawl into their desk and pee themselves and cry that's what i like. global sell you on the idea that dropping bombs brings police to the chicken hawks
we're. going. to do socks for the tell you that what we gossip the tabloids but the supporters. of advertising tell me you are not cool enough to buy their product. all the hawks along the border we'll watch. it. i. thought it was supposed to some of us. but it. looks like a school for. last time we chased. each one of them carrying twenty kilos
terrorist organization with twenty five. monday morning a very good morning for me. international this morning first than the iraqi army has announced most of the city of tal afar has been liberated from islamic state militants but with terrorist still holed up in the basements and underground tunnels there's a long way to go before that city can return to anything like the next as a senior correspondent reports there are deadly surprises around almost every corner of. the islamic state remain you'll find. that plastered all over the bridges and buildings in
iraq he sent his haven't yet gotten around to covering them up what with being busy fighting a day after the victory was announced here and fighting still hasn't died down isis hiding throughout the city and doing. any geographic areas or districts in thailand they're hiding in basements and buildings and in time rooms underneath the city waiting to ambush patrolling iraqi soldiers. was. why don't you let them look at them. well i says has been beaten in telephone they've made sure to leave behind plenty of surprises booby traps everywhere intel a fraud they have to turn the city into a sap as nightmare and coming here we were moved multiple times not to touch
anything no matter how innocent it might seem for we know behind these. could be explosives booby trapped behind the times even in the right switches. be it one where officers went into a house and sat on a sofa and exploded and along with the house they had booby trapped the sofa another example they were explosive to light switches when you turn on their lights the house explodes they were bombs into refrigerators and even the door handles when you open the door and explodes. i've just come back from tel afar and you can didn't lie down on the bed without cyprus check and first drop bombs and wires everywhere we don't touch anything. we will do all we can to disarm everything but there's only so much we can do some houses will have to be destroyed. this bomb was intended for us but the planes and helicopters destroyed the roads and i still
couldn't get the car bomb out our engineers found it and dismantled it if it had been used it would have done as great damage they disarm the explosive canisters and detonated them in a controlled explosion but it's strange isis folded almost too quickly. there is evidence that around four hundred families of isis fighters were allowed to leave on august twenty fifth in an unspecified direction the rumor among iraqi troops is that as many as two thousand isis fighters have been given safe passage out of tal afar into syria again this is a rumor and we conned confirm it but it would explain the unexpectedly easy fight
iraqi troops wouldn't let us into the center of telephone saying would still far too dangerous but having spent some time here in the suburbs we haven't seen a single civilian most of them ran when your platoon a team presented itself as the battle began braving that merciless presence in order to get away but four of the iraqi ministry in the u.s. led to release and brits to their right on fire a frog of them saluting and come back a question of how much of tal afar there be left to come back to more i guys do you have from talib iraq. rival protests in the city of berkeley have descended into chaos anti fascist demonstrators they broke through police barricades during a rally against a and then clashed with right wing activists.
the way it. was prior to the the unrest the police band sticks masks and any potential weapons however dozens of anti fascist protesters broke those rules one of them attacked a photographer for instance others reportedly issued threats to those who are trying to film them thirteen people were arrested and six others were injured is callum open now with more from berkeley. so we're here outside of the civic center in downtown berkeley calif and as you can see around me there's a huge crowd of people calling themselves anti fascist protesters these are people that assemble to counter a right wing rally that was called enough for today for this afternoon to the slogan say no to marxism well these are both here that object to a number of the people involved with that recorded right wing rally talking to the
white supremacy and fascism assemble to denounce it so it's quite in the first crowd that is assembled here in front of the civic center as you can see behind me here we have the folks that generally referred to as the black bloc you know they've got goggles on now they're covered in black masks times come in an arc is a grouping we've got other people here all with different marxist groups talking about socialism and communism while we have a lot of people assigned to say things like say no to hate their feet hurt from their seat to seek a guys who are causing violence in the streets nobody would be running to the nazis for protection everyone would be ridiculing the way id of. the city of berkeley has actually rallied around the slogan for united against a that's been hanging from all the public buildings this late in the stores around the city is just one illustration of the ongoing division that continues to take place across the united states especially in the aftermath of charlottesville
a lot of different views being expressed here a lot of anger but a lot of folks that just say they're worried about their country there seems to be a lot of division the far left in the far right political violence in the streets so a lot of different messages here in downtown berkeley california. as susie will the vice chairman of the libertarian party of voters spoke to us and told us that this violence is being normalized now across america. a lot of the normalize ation of violence that we're seeing is happening because even at the government level we're seeing situations in which the government settles its disputes with violence that there is a dispute with the islamic world is settling it with violence if there's a dispute with drugs they settle that with violence and that example needs to change so one possibility will be a wholesale rejection of violence at the personal level and at the governmental level and that would be an incredible opportunity for american growth but the other possibility is an increasing cycle of violence where violence is normalize or
becomes more and more part of our politics and of violent politics is a rejection of everything american stands for is that we're able to settle our dispute with out violence it is one of the things that has set america part since our founding and to see that going in this direction to me is just heartbreaking i want to see it stop. targeting confederate monuments the splits and. move into the world of spirally will certainly in this case we're going to tell you what the cinema of memphis is cancelled the annual screening of the classic movie going with the wind that iconic film of love and civil war was reportedly accused of being racist by america's left wing. margaret mitchell's novel the film is set on a southern plantation during the civil war and reconstruction periods now the
consolation after thirty four years is fired up social media as you can imagine on some side some people incredulous that the film was dropped others though stressing that should be out of politics some tweets are accompanied by the hash tag hattie mcdaniel after the actress who played the housemaid at the time she became the first african-american to be nominated for and to win an academy award back then the film's producer collaborated with rights groups to prevent accusations of racism right term political activist jeffrey maher klein spoke to us and believes that from monuments to award winning films the country's left wing is trying to rewrite america's history right now. it's kind of insane that they would claim this movie is insensitive when hattie mcdaniel is the first black person to win an oscar so that movie has very historical significance even just for that fact i guess there's a chance that the management of the theater is afraid of that radical left groups
like n t four are going to show up and destroy the theater if they show a movie like gone with the wind because it may be deemed culturally insensitive despite the fact that it's very culturally significant i feel like most people recognize that the removal of historical statues seems to be an attempt to rewrite america's history and not showing historically significant movie would also be an example of trying to rewrite america's history sure you've got your views are to dot com check you the list no but all the stories you see on the outside you'll say to come on up here after a landslide election victory the french president's popularity hits a record low that story more of this brightness monday morning.
again tens of thousands of terrorists in syria uniting under one banner and five government forces the rapidly growing threat is being compared to the rise of islamic state when it emerged in the region he goes down off he's got the details a jihadi army drafted by a group with known links to al qaida can be a good thing. or h.t.s. is a new force in the syrian civil war there are twenty five thousand terrorist fighters consolidated now in northwestern syria in perspective a comparable amount of troops led islamic state in proclaiming its caliphate in half of syria and iraq and this new force has a very familiar face there are dozens of groups many of which were previously
backed by the united states most units making up h.t.s. had previously been rallying under the banner of all nusra front brutal massacre torture rape there have been no boundaries and how far will go to win this war. while generate the highly effective. gap to bucket the extremely toxic chemical weapons on the city this is one of the methods of torture that was used by the militants.
a nova group that is part of the h.t.s. now is neuros in key. chilling pictures of a child being executed apparently broad recognition over other tera factions after filming this video the boy was beheaded. this atrocity raised many questions about washington's vetting in syria if you're able to report is this the kind of thing that would affect assistance. u.s. or to. this specific group but also just in general to. well i think you know if as you said if we can. prove that this was indeed what happened and this group was involved in and i think it would certainly give us pause. give you pause will give us pause about any assistance or frankly any. further involvement with this group so are. two of the most notorious groups among
a total of seventy in this new conflict of terror well armed and under the same command ready to strike and see key syrian cities. mideast expert joshua landis told us that the new terror groups already overwhelmed other factions in the area it's quite clear that the domination. how did a shadow over the province. as militarized that even groups like the sink which had been allied with the united states went over and fell under the control of this more dominant jihad ist group so it is a big problem for both the united states turkey russia iran in the coming months what to do with it lip province it's like that there but they'll have to be a military solution to it al qaida cannot be allowed to build itself up and to
use northern syria as a base from which to launch attacks against the west or the united states although they claim not to support assad are clearly looking to the syrian government as an ultimate solution for their own kind of problem in syria. elsewhere around the world this morning the un's nuclear watchdog is warning that north korea is increasing efforts to produce a new nuclear reactor washington expressed its concern but as you know khan reports next it's not just the north korean leader who's obsessed with nuclear weapons these days. on the campaign trail donald trump promised to boost a weakening military as soon as i take office i will ask congress to fully eliminate the defense sequester and was submitted new budget to rebuild our military it is so depleted we will. now the u.s. is already the global leader in military spending with
a defense budget that's roughly the size of these nine countries combined despite this president trump says he wants more and here's how he's planning on spending u.s. taxpayer money we are committed to expanding and improving a state of the art missile defense system to shoot down missiles in flight. and we're getting better and better and better at it it's actually incredible what's taking place but missile defense systems are just the tip of the iceberg in this latest military gold rush on thursday it was announced that the us air force will develop a new nuclear cruise missile a project that's been in the pipeline for years but now given the green light thanks to commander in chief president trump and this is all great news for industry giants lockheed martin and raytheon both have been enjoying soaring stock market values ever since trump's inauguration but with the money flowing the risks are apparently being overlooked back in two thousand and fifteen former secretary of defense william j. perry said the nuclear missile project should be dropped because they can be launched without warning incoming both nuclear and conventional variants cruise
missiles are uniquely destabilizing type of weapon but destabilization seems to be the least of concerns for the new administration the effect of the trillion dollar trillion dollar plus so-called modernization would have the effect of making possible for u.s. policymakers to believe that they could launch a first strike nuclear war there would be to extremely dangerous development and it reminds us that in the nineteen fifties when the soviet union was really very far behind the united states there are repeated discussions at the highest levels of the us government whether or not to launch a preemptive nuclear war. since the end of world war two peace has been achieved through nuclear deterrence and the balance of power hopefully this concept isn't lost on president trump as he sets out on his quest for an even stronger military serach on r.t.e. washington d.c. talking of one president to another dissatisfaction it seems of the french public
with their president is increasing. according to latest poll anyway conducted by the french one french newspapers you see less than half that seem approve of the policies of manual micron at the moment who would want to be a politician at the same point in their presidencies let's take a look at this with a nosy comparing the a producer says nicolas sarkozy had sixty nine percent from fifty four percent but it's not happy the day we are some people in paris about microns of power of fall from grace that. doesn't surprise me that what he's doing is making human popular nobody supports his proposal for extending working hours i think he's supported by the rich class and the people who won't vote for him are now seeing that he doesn't serve our interests. which is more violent crime was elected on a promise for change and i think he will be making many changes to labor laws and other things the french people are too closed minded when it comes to changing benefit reform so it's not surprising that his ratings are foreign but it's very
rare for presidents popularity to increase so i'm not too surprised we need to give him time to get things done here on their lakshman so we need to live with that one of the main points of discontent has been across labor reform program which led to violent protests he is also widely criticized for significant cuts to public spending on the military budget another when the government cuts to housing benefits to him across troubles are not confined to france now his comments on poland's position in the e.u. have been met with scorn from polish politicians. i think that baldwin statements are another error in the strategy of the country and the manifestation of how this country wants to position itself on the margin of europe's history present and future the state just today to isolate itself in the functioning progress of your. poland is not isolating itself and has not been isolated because it seems to me that president maccarone carelessly polish media reports and doesn't know what's
going on in our part of europe still it happens sometimes perhaps crawls are going comments result from lack of political experience which i can understand but i expect that he will make up for the shortcoming and will be more restraint in the future. well mitt is plummeting ratings it's believed micron's no change his communications strategy somewhat making it more open the editor of the people magazine lucre then he believes some things the president says are just irrelevant . because come to the end of the spirit race maybe it's not a surprise to anybody. french will be satisfied with the. solution. people should write. he spreads polish prime minister said that mr merkel was a coach and should strike because what he said. what he said he may do so later he's kind of true to us oh i'm criticized for being. too
racist something which is totally too much of an joke but it doesn't make you say things wrong stuff trying to set for example the french. want to say that they were for sale so why the sort of if you came up with for france any tricks pick the french would refuse to. leave without thought for now at twenty three moscow time this morning i hope your mum is going to turn out good thanks for watching check out our you tube channel for all the best videos and stories of the day and that you service for so much more to online twenty four seven i'm kevin always great to have your company then our programs continue right after this quick break next. in case you're new to the game this is how it works in the economy is built around
corporate corporations from washington to washington post media that. voters elected a businessman to run this country business if. you must it's not business as usual it's business like it's never been done before. seemed wrong. to me. to shape out just to come out to it and. because betrayal. when so many find themselves worlds apart. just to look for common ground. about your sudden passing i've only just learned you were yourself and taken your
last wrong turn. to you as we all knew it would i tell you i'm sorry i could so i write these last words in hopes to put to rest these things that i never got off my chest. i remember when we first met my life turned on each breath . but then my feelings started to change you talked about war like it was again still some more fun to feel those that didn't like to question our arc and i secretly promised to never be like it said one does not leave a funeral the same as one enters the mind it's consumed with death and this one quite different i speak to you now because there were no other takers. claimed that mainstream media has met its maker.
poem to sophie and co a sophie shevardnadze while the climate and by mental issues may seem less serious on the breaking news of the day the ecology actually lays at the root of many of today's global troubles. what exactly are the implications of climate change on the politics of the world well today i talked to the russian presidential envoy for environment and transportation who once also served as russia's defense minister saying iran though is my guest today. government told me what hugo logical sentients neutral green energy sources effects of climate change will hit harder as we move into an uncertain future with the environment and. increasingly pressing issues for the coming decades so are we
heading into an age of eco wars how the problems of overpopulation and scars resources be tackled and can the world powers act quickly enough to adapt to the course of nature. simply have no fresh unpresidential and way for environment transportation see really great to have you on our program once again after them all come so let's talk about what about the paris climate record lot of politicians government scientists held the historic. present tromp he says he doesn't care about the climate change is actually pledged to cancel the paris accord me with him you never know because one day he says one thing another day he says never think so what you were expecting can we trust his statements well to starts with won't commence. richards will know what he said before the election and what it says. well it's an american business we have. well as you know the paris. agreement signed and in fact it's already ratified by one hundred thirty six
countries. russia hasn't yet. because we want to carefully analyze the consequences of this parity. climate change agreement it's a framework agreement we want to let's say. the huge amount of russian forests. which absorbs a lot of. the oak since carbon dioxide because in fact russia is the world's dawna in ecology russia absorbs much more carbon dioxide that it then introduce. so we want to make sure that our obligations will be fulfilled as president putin said during the citing the paris agreement we have a very ambitious
a of cutting. carbon dioxide emissions. so the level of sense seventy percent counting from the nineteen ninety which is very ambitious and i'm sure will hit the target by the year two thousand and thirty if you don't mind we're going to talk in detail about the downfalls that this treaty could cost the russian economy but before that why ask about trans statements because i remember for instance with the kyoto protocol on global warming. it crumbled after bush abandoned it some thinking of trying does the same it does it risk that the states that are involved well sort of say we don't need this treaty anymore looks awfully driving you to comment on the american position all the time as a said. regardless of the american position. we're concerned with the climate change with think that there is
a global warming at least on the north in one of the hemisphere i will comment on that later but. emitting carbon dioxide depends mainly on the sort of energy most of the world use. i don't know again what. president trump thinks all the american business and i suspect. they don't want the paris agreement to curtail the economic growth i always suspect it. insists on that but that's my attitude my approach ok let's leave it trump aside but as someone who knows so much about it and who served so much in the government do you feel like intuition only that this accord will go down because kyoto and copenhagen didn't really happen well it depends of course agreement will say.
the only. reasonable attitude that it will it will be fulfilled. but there is one condition by everybody if one country for example forgets it and doesn't stay in the limits which it promised then i'm sure that other countries will all might. be gay sions that's quite possible but so far i would like to stress that again the paris agreement is a free work agreement there are no. specific limits on anything and as. you probably know the devil is in the details. so let's talk precisely about russia you've said that russia is carefully assessing this framework. implementing the paris what kind of the konami downturns are we talking about for russia i don't expect that they will be the end of the
oil or natural gas people i don't believe that. at the same time. of the number of solar energy in russian grows slowly but gradually and we have several regions like orchestras. the area or even far in the north where there is a lot of sun. in that. limited areas makes sense to use renewable energy mainly sun energy. as i recently said there is also one source for a new energy in russia which has never been used at all and i mean waste and litter. because we're now going to build five big units. with litter and waste will be burned producing
heat or electricity and i'm sure russia generates such an amount of waste that we always have a lot of ways to produce energy so that brings me to the other two questions because russia like you said we don't predict the end of the oil industry and if i own thing is in where are the largest producer of crude oil second largest producer of natural gas. i mean we've been doing pretty well in those fields i mean the existing scheme is so efficient wind vest so much in the renewables business so risk. first of all it's technology is secondly it is possible but i'm not a clairvoyant ok but. we don't know what will happen with technologies in one hundred years. it's quite possible that any new technology will emerge which will make producing energy from wind or sun or waste. cheaper
than the earth and producing natural gas or oil i'm not sure so do you think that what would happen like you're saying there will be oil but no one's going to use it anymore because the new energy is going to be cheaper sarah was just going to automatically. believe that still there will be one hundred years ahead that there will be oil there will be natural gas but for example cars which consume the most amount of oil as a petrol more and more cars will be electricity so what about the near future if we look at the euro prince who are also one of the largest exporter of gas and oil to europe so let's say we're starting to pay attention and curb greenhouse gas emissions and invest less in the resources that we're talking about than what happens to europe are there any repercussions for them. what happens with europe yes i mean we're going to be obviously well i was warning us gas and i'm so
worried about. first of all i always insisted that russia is also a european country mentally graphic even religiously where europeans. and most of the europeans who might talk to agree to that secondly it depends of course on the energy balance which i have mentioned before. countries who don't have a lot of natural resources or guess them more motivated right now too. to move into the direction of. everything depends on price on the economy but again. if we speak of natural gas its environmental friendly energy type. i don't see how for example germany might substitute russian gas. in the nearest
future once i remember president joked when he was in germany that ok you don't write you don't like russian you don't like russian oil you don't like russian gas but how will you heat yourselves using wood but again this wood will be russian. so that leaves the question open to be serious about it but speaking back to the paris agreement we're going to stick to it where going to rectify it i would like to make that point very clear and our girl is much more ambitious than most of the other countries in the world seventy percent of carbon dioxide emissions by two thousand and thirty
is much more than. promised to do by the same time. what exactly is it terrorism treats exists in two very different forms. one. is actions by very radical ecological organizations. like for example we're in peace who attacks or oil rigs. or cut fisheries nets. and there is another side of the story or another side of the medal if you remember iraq aggression against kuwait in one thousand names. when. iraq with drew its military forces out of kuwait under the world pressure. they set fire on oil rigs.
exploded some of them so that a huge amount of oil went to the gulf. and for many years there was no fish no life no sea life. it's called in my view ecoterrorism. so ecotourism already exists. i can forecast this century another type of threat that one country for different reasons maybe economic maybe political won't comply with international environment the lords and in that case. may forecast i may forecasts international ecological sanctions against this of that country to feel like the threat of eco terrorism right now our
days is more acute than when iraq you're in iraq. i would think you would but i still think it's it's theoretically possible it's possible. some. i don't know. some mad dictator for example. dictates my use in the disaster as a last resort to withstand for example for a brush it's. unfortunate we're going to take a break right now when we're back we'll continue talking to see if you have an elf russian president special envoy for environment and transportation also former defense minister of russian federation talking about the paris accord talking about the arctic and the global shortfall in water stay with us.
the two thousand and eight economic crisis turns some countries into pigs these are the countries with we korea colonies that needed austerity policies if you are in a situation of flow bloat even the recession austerity is a very bad idea it doesn't work and it makes millions of people very unhappy those who are unemployed see their wages decline after almost
a decade how good are the results to solo said the new york city's will by the people gathered in which the wider world beat people to see what i. believe will be she is i mean if a legal. challenge was dealing with this young was always saying it's the sound of a dog in a while the same measures still in place to one of the consequences is to weaken blue bird flu dispute over who will first do. this is the truth the consumer is the consequences are actually quite acceptable to the decision to move. a batch or sudden passing i've only just learnt. taken your last bank turned. up to you as we all knew it would i tell you i'm sorry. so i write these last words
and helps to put to rest these things that i never got off my chest. i remember when we first met my life turned on each. but then my feelings start to change you talked about more like it was a game still some more fun to feel those that didn't like to question our art. and i secretly promised to never be like it said one does not leave a funeral in the same as one enters the mind it's consumed with death this one quite different speech because there are no other takers. to claim that mainstream media has met its make. with lawmakers manufactured consent instinctive public will. when the right wing closest to protect them so. when the crime and larry
go round lifts only the woman has a job. that's not to ignore middle of the room signals. deluding real news is really the world. coins saul's for trust it's a mathematical formula that solves for trust think about all the institutions in your life that require trust you trust people on the road are going to be about crashing into you you trust of the doctors professional you trust the hospitals working in a trust third parties all day long but point is the first trust loz international currency that doesn't require trust it just requires consensus to buy into every ten minutes the protocol and why would you not be buying into the protocol if you're getting fabulously wealthy or watching central banks collapse a supply like god i mean wealth comes and goes but watching central banks crawl
into their desk and pee themselves and cry that's what i like. back with simply about no question presidents and wait for environment and transportation the one month on talk about arctic because that's another huge topic everyone's talking about now twenty two percent of the world's undiscovered oil and gas do you think the race for this piece of pie could cost you in further tensions on the international scene. you're quite right that a huge amount of oil gas but not only. girl. in the arctic and already about. i'm sure this.
movement over russia in the direction of the arctic will continue with that i am absolutely sure. it. depends how economic interests and economic reasons coincides with mental production. if we speak your boat oil rigs or mitchell yes rick's offshore rates they should be much more reliable and safe than for example those used in on the offshore for african in nigeria so environment so the limitations and rules should be much stricter than that elsewhere i know you're going to say i don't want to comment on politics but sometimes anything that has to do with environment is linked to politics and you can't separate these two and you said that russia will continue its movement towards dark tick so that is arctic military drills they have caused a lot of awkward here opened the media has actually even compared it to the cold
war style saber rattling why do you think that anything that russia does in your region is automatically considered as a question. well i don't see much military activity in the arctic to be frank i was a minister of defense for six years so i know what i'm talking about. we have several . which you might call new bases but in fact they're not new they existed during the soviet times where simply getting back after a disintegration of the country causing the military budget besides. military bases they don't affect international security it's not nuclear missile sites it's nothing like that. they're purely defensive for example defense system why can't we deploy a defense system or now
a national territory we don't move our military infrastructure outside our own country. secondly military bases in fact help exploring the arctic and using it in peaceful purposes for example in metal logic in the weather forecasting in examining the drift of the ice that ocean is definitely melting that's a fact and it's it melts don't rather drastically so like to say that it's all melted down it's just like free water so anyone can cross them at some point by twenty thirty they said it's going to last for in the summer depends i can give you one figure. the arctic area males don't weaken much quicker than the northern hemisphere in general. in the last thirty
years the temperature in the arctic changed. zero point eight degrees centigrade in thirty years that's quite a lot of course nobody expects that the arctic will melt down overnight that's impossible and things worth it wouldn't have a bad way but it definitely mel's. for russia there are both pros and cons that. pros of course if the northern arctic route will be civil it will be free it brings it will bring russia huge benefits and transportation because the road if we call it sea sea wheat from. the us stock is twice as short as it is now. there are also cons for example if the tundra starts to melt don't then
a lot of construction already existing in that area. i would say collapse but it will create a lot of problems but so it depends the way you talk and the way scientists it does seem kind of inevitable that some point it's going to be ice free at least in the summer i don't like being in this waste can now i don't expect it will be ice free very soon maybe in two or three hundred years. but. ok right no arctic melts down. but who knows what will happen in three or four hundred years maybe it starts it will start to cool. where i always mention northern hemisphere once i was in the antarctic. there are several russian and arctic stations and we monitor the climate for sixty
years. and the amount of ice in the doctor is not melting down but it grows. in simple language i think they claim it for the world it's it's like greece is getting cool it's getting warmer it's getting cool in getting warmer and to make very far reaching conclusions you need a scientific data. for a period of at least one thousand years so make conclusions. and so far have st if your data. let's say one hundred years it's nothing it's purely nothing. right so let's wait and see two three hundred years or so happens i want to touch upon another topic which is water water. shortfall which is also
predicted in twenty thirty in the united nations' protocol you know there are already tensions when you look at egypt and its neighbors to feel like water could be something lack of water could be something that would trigger the next big conflict in the future yes to make it short i believe in that. once lived enough. i'm an old spy ok. and right now it's already a huge problem in africa with fresh water it already exists and there are lots of areas in the world central asian some other asian countries africa where there is not enough of your drinking water russia is blessed. to host a huge amount of fresh water a lake baikal low keeps nearly one fourth or fresh water
we're blessed and lucky to have such and to see russia becoming like a huge freshwater export or the future yes it's quite possible in fact we already are exporting some fresh drinking by coal water. it's very expensive its course around two dollars a bottle but people buy it could you actually pay attention or to water shortage and predict or prevent conflicts. well first of all first of all. there is a shortage of fresh water generally not only drinking water but only fresh water for air or for agriculture it's already a problem and you're quite right saying that. there are conflicts around water there are many conflicts around the water already happened in the world. and this sense the problem of the world and we have
a lot of bilateral agreements on so-called trans national rivers or dress national lakes secondly there are new technologies and i believe in them. making fresh water out of salt water ocean. i love to knowledge is and maybe you know. it it concerns with environment. next year i hope that russia will launch the first. floating new clear station it will be based in chicago it will be the aim of course energy but the science is sold me that the same floating nuclear station might easily make freshwater out of sol the ocean it's possible. it's a new resource for the world but speaking about arab countries african countries.
you are right the world becomes more and more unpredictable. because of a lack of fresh water and they are all over the conflicts and unfortunately i don't want to be a bad forecast but i believe there will be future wars because of pressure star going to see like water pipelines instead of oil pipelines. there are scientists who say that in future russia will the more exporting fresh water oil and gas arab countries are already interested in having something similar to the power plant that you're talking about. but given the region security problems is it safe for them to have something like that i mean what if pirates hijacking or terrorists are human nuclear problem serious or he gets hit by his
great tomahawk missile i can open a state secret go away of course i'm joking it's not as a very tough kept secret but if you take a jumbo jet boy for. doing don't stray to the center of the more done nuclear power station i assure you that nothing will happen so all the modern technologies at least. nuclear scientists who produce more than types of nuclear power stations guarantee that in right. putting their name and all the ferrety that the safety of modern fifth generation nuclear power stations are absolutely guaranteed against every possible conceivable natural disaster or course if you hear any.
shell to the nuclear power station then it will be a catastrophe but i hope. wouldn't lose it mind completely fall on that optimistic note thank you. president since a few thank you think it. would normally just manufacture consent to stick to public wells. when the ruling classes protect themselves. when the final merry go
round lifts only the one percent. we can all middle of the room signals. room clean real news for the world. the two thousand and eight economic crisis turn some countries into pigs these are the countries with weaker economies that needed austerity policies if you are in a situation of flow bloat even the recession austerity is a very bad idea it doesn't work and it makes millions of people very unhappy those who are unemployed see their wages decline almost a decade how good are the results you saw almost at the new york city's will by the people gathered in greece to watch the world beat people with your daughter june. who traded beautiful blue she was i mean to for legal. challenge must.
think it's just something you cannot give. while the same measure is still in place to one of the consequences. lieber. well first. off this is the truth be considered is the consequences are actually quite acceptable to the decision makers. but it was opposed to some of us it was a. bit of. last time we chased. each one of them carrying twenty kilos of drugs. first
for. well i says being. entirely. sure to leave behind plenty of surprises. every red. troubles to the iraqi city of tal afar iraqi forces now face the difficult task of making that city safe enough so that people can return. in syria developments as many as twenty five thousand terrorists now believed to have regrouped and are now fighting on the one that includes previously bought by the u.s. we've got the latest on the developing story.
